~ Early 19th Century Percussion Cap Pistol ~
Here we have a beautifully decorated percussion cap pistol that bears no marks but appears to have been made in a British or French style.
The pistol is quite strange as it has been made as a decorative yet functional piece, the wood used doesn’t seem as heavy as most military pistols but as this is a private purchase piece that was most likely a conscious choice by the purchaser.
The wood has been wonderfully worked with arabesque designs and the metalwork has been engraved with similar designs.
Unfortunately there has been some damage to the wooden pistol grip but it doesn’t effect the decorative carvings.
The pistol bears no makers marks.
~ Dimensions ~
The barrel is 7 inches (18 cm) long.
The pistol is 13 inches (33 cm) long.
The pistol weighs 525g.
~ Condition ~
The pistol is in good condition for its age with some cosmetic scuffs to the wood.
There is a crack to the wooden pistol grip in line with where the trigger guard is attached.
~ Postage ~
UK postage is £18 or it can be inspected in our shop....Read full description
